For Jean Anderson, military service is part of her family history. For Rebecca Evans, it was a way to escape an abusive home life. For Erin Askew, it was to be her career. And for Erin Martin, her impulsive enlistment was “the best worst decision she’d ever made.” The experiences of female veterans in Idaho are as varied as their reasons for enlisting. But for each of them, their time in the military shaped the course of their lives long after they left.
Boiseans turned out in force to honor veterans in all branches of the military in an annual parade that began with an A-10 flyover and ended with another flyover by two Blackhawk helicopters. “Talk about spectacular, eh?” said Walt Smith, executive director of the parade. In between, about 2,700 participants — representing all branches of the military — and spectators braved the damp and chilly weather. “It’s all about tradition and legacy.
Thousands of kids disguised as princesses and zombies, witches goblins — including one kissing booth (really) — plus their parents, equally disguised as cowboys and hippies and goblins— descended on Harrison Boulevard, Boise’s traditional trick-or-treating spot. Dressed as a kissing booth, 8-year-old Ethan Bergener, from Nampa, played to the crowd. He passed out chocolate kisses to Harrison homeowners and surprised parents, as he collected his own treats.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
